The theme could make it easier for you when selecting the food, décor, music and venue.Budgeting- it is vital for you to stick strictly within your budget as this would reflect positively on your ability to work within given parameters. Depending on the budget, you can then decide on the venue, number of guests, food, decoration and entertainment.

The most important thing would be to have as many volunteers as possible and to assign tasks to reliable individuals to help you through the planning process. Always be organised and obtain daily check-ins with everybody involved in the event planning process so as to be aware of what is being done and what isn’t. Be smart, have a plan, start planning ahead of time, and keep a steady mind to throw off a successful.
